To run an online business related to webmaster tools requires somewhat different strategies to get good pay per click revenues. You can’t rely on simple techniques like email marketing. It’s recommended highly to save an online backup and get powerful adsl connectivity if you’re providing open source projects in Codeplex on your website.

Are these the top active or your favorites? ClubStarterKit has more activity than ProMesh and Dinner Now.

Bayarsaikhan said...

I didn.t include starter kits, samples, extensions or patterns etc..

Steve Trefethen said...

Thanks, great list! I now have even more stuff I want to dig into, sigh.

Anonymous said...

Some interesting work going on there.

Can anyone explain what is open source by them?
BSD style license?
GPL?

I can call my grandmother a plane, it dont mean she can fly.
You can say 'open source' but its a very, very ambiguous definition.

I presume this is all windows platform specific right, so could be nice to port some of this stuff to OSX and other OS.

Of course, I only give my time working on projects which allow me the freedom to use, modify, and redistribute it so that could be a sticking point.

SharpForge is a C# / Asp.Net 2.0 / Subversion open source project management web application. It's goal is to provide SourceForge or Codeplex like project hosting functionality but for everyone and anyone :)

Anonymous said...

All bound to a single platform?

Oh well.

Bayarsaikhan said...

"Can anyone explain what is open source by them?"

For me, Most of the open source projects on Codeplex are created to add values to current Microsoft platform, not to other. I think you should mix it with GPL or expect them to open their commercial platforms ;)



SharpForge worth mentioning. Thanks to #3 Anonymous ;)

Michael S. Scherotter said...

And it's only code for digital computers! How short sided! What about us analog computer folks? ;)

Bayarsaikhan said...

i mean
you should NOT mix with GPL or BSD similars"

Jacob said...

Hey, thanks for posting on this. I have to say though, these might be somewhat open source, but to be really open source, Microsoft would have to open up the source behind the .NET framework.

Anonymous said...

Dull dull dull dull dull.
People writing endless more middleware layers to go over other middleware layers.
What ever happened to small, efficient, clever apps that actually did complete and interesting things in their own right?

Wouter said...

iTunes 2? That sounds like a lawsuit to me.

bayarsaikhan said...

To Jacob;

Nice joke on "Microsoft would have to open up the source behind the .NET framework." ;)

bayarsaikhan said...

To anonymous;

You are right about small apps.

According to the CEO of Google, Web 3.0 should be small, simple, efficient, clever apps that are connected to each others etc...

Nathan Fiedler said...

Regarding jacob's point, in order for these projects to be classified as "Free Software", the entire stack would have to be GPL-compatible. For instance, prior to the opening of Java, anything written on Java that required Sun's closed-source APIs was considered "non-free" by the GNU organization.

So, jacob was not joking. These CodePlex projects might be "open source", but they will never be free.

Stop freaking whinin

If you dont wanna use the software becouse its "not real open source" or "really free"... then don't!!

im so damn sick of hearing of guys saying: all MS products should be open source....

HELL NO!!

Like saying to intel, ibm, or any other company. Make you technology public or open source so everyone can copy it and make they own version of it....

And they are free!! download->use->keep using->no paying = free software.

BTW..

Apple sucks!!

The Sandcastle Help File Builder most definitely isn't open source. It doesn't allow the distribution of modified versions, and doesn't allow the code to be sold.

Oooooo, he said GOOGLE...he must be smart!

Sheeeez get over yourself!

The iTunes 2.0 guy just keeps re-releasing the same prototype, has been for a month. Check out http://www.codeplex.com/gshield for a stand alone app thats not more middleware.

What a bunch of open-source hyprocritical comments on this blog.

Sun has only recently opened-source Java, yet for many years there were open source java projects.

Lucia said...

"Can anyone explain what is open source by them?"

They know, it's all over the Net. They are just trying to appeal to the inept IT managers as they have always done.

It is really appreciable that day by day the open source .net projects getting popularity. I seen a list at http://www.dotnetopen.net/
Being a .net developer I would like to know how I can participate in open source project development. What are the important points to be considered when joining such project?
